UNIQUE INNOVATION
SolaRoad is a pioneering innovation in the field of energy harvesting. It is a unique concept, which converts sunlight on the road surface into electricity: the road network works as an inexhaustible source of green power. SolaRoad is sustainable and can be used in practice in many different ways.

TECHNIQUE
The idea behind SolaRoad is simple: sunlight falling on the road surface is absorbed by solar cells and converted into electricity - the road surface acts as a large solar panel. The electricity generated in this way will find practical applications in street lighting.

CONCEPT
Wouldn't it be nice if our roads act like solar panels? And if we could drive our vehicles with the solar power generated by this? In 2009, these questions formed the beginning of a vision for the future: the large-scale generation of renewable energy with the sunlight that falls on 450 km2 road surface every day.
